About the Event

Alexander Hamilton played an intimate role in the selection of the Great Falls of the Passaic as the site designated by the Society for the Establishment of Useful Manufacturers for their experiment with Hamilton’s vision of a national economy based in manufacturing. One substantial outcome of this selection was the establishment of America’s first planned industrial city – Paterson, NJ. This talk explores the significance of Hamilton’s time spent with General George Washington at the Dey Mansion in Wayne, NJ during the fall months of 1780 and its fateful connection to the founding of Paterson, NJ in 1792.

Speaker's Bio: Gianfranco Archimede, MS, RPA, has served for the past eighteen years as Director of the Division of Historic Preservation for the City of Paterson and Executive Director of Paterson’s Historic Preservation Commission. He provides programmatic guidance to the city on preservation planning and cultural resources, oversight of Paterson’s public preservation projects, and regulatory permitting review for hundreds of large and small scale construction projects within Paterson’s three national, state and local historic districts. He administers the Paterson HPC legacy programs for public awareness and education, which was honored in 2015 with a New Jersey Historic Preservation Award for Outstanding Achievement.
